Slightly sweet malt aroma coupled with a fresh, green aroma of cut grass from the hops. A touch of stone fruit is hiding in the background.


A mild flavour for this easy drinking ale - there’s a touch of sweet grain malt and caramel that turns quickly to a more bitter note of cut leaves and stem. A hint of the stone fruit at the start but it fades fast when the hops come in. It has quite the dry effect in the mouth, very astringent and it ends on a chalky note. Tasty but with a bit of bite not dissimilar to an IPA.


Something fatty and grilled to give the drier aspect a bit of balance - pork loin or a rib-eye would be a nice pairing.


Pours a deep amber colour with a hazy body and medium carbonation. A thin head of small bubbles rests on top.

Dandy Brewing is one of Calgary’s biggest craft brew success stories. There are more than a few operations that have kicked into gear in the past ten years, but Dandy has set itself apart through a consistent program of marque beers and a tight taproom experience that has tasty food to match their 20 tap selection. It’s been seven years since four buddies — Derek, Dylan, Ben, and Matt — used the changes in the craft beer legislation in Alberta to launch their vision. Dandy got running just as Calgary’s craft scene stepped on the gas and headed into light speed. Only a handful of beers remain on the permanent slate, while the lads spend their time coming up with fresh ideas and new angles on classic styles. Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 3 is the continuing saga of beer development from the Calgary craft veterans. An English Ale with rich flavour and body, perfect for the after whistle pint before home. Serves well at 8°C and can cellar for up to six months.
